Welcome to the website of Composer & Educator...
What music colleagues are saying about Dr. Scott Watson!
New/original music for the 1921 Buster Keaton silent film comedy, THE GOAT.
This 25-minute score (in 9 scenes) scored for an 18-piece "theater orchestra" is meant to be performed LIVE, as the film is projected on the big screen in concert! Score and parts, with conductor click track, are available for a reasonable rental fee - contact email@example.com if interested. Optionally, I would love to guest conduct your ensemble in a concert performance of this unique work for film and ensemble! To view the complete film, visit: https://youtu.be/_XWArLmVDO0?feature=shared.
Below is a short video overview of the premiere, with the New Holland Band (Scott Watson, guest conducting) at Cairn University (Langhorne, PA).
